This Weekend in CLE: December 6 – 8, 2013

Ice Skating Wade Oval

The holiday season is officially here and with all the hustle and bustle that comes with this time of year, if you’re not careful, you’ll miss it. Take some time to slow things down this weekend to experience Cleveland’s festive glow at these events.

12/7: Tinsel Town – PlayhouseSquare, Downtown Cleveland

What better way is there to dive into the holidays then with a hot chocolate bar and cookie decorating? Not to mention holiday crafts, pictures with Santa and more. Bring the family to the beautifully-decorated Palace Theatre lobby for simple holiday fun at Tinsel Town. All the proceeds benefit community engagement and education programs at PlayhouseSquare.

12/7- Ohio City Holiday Festival – Market District, Ohio City

There are some classic holiday activities we all love, seeing Santa, Christmas carolers and finding the perfect gift for someone. Ohio City Holiday Festival puts all your classic holiday fun in one place. Browse holiday goods, take photos with Santa, enjoy mulled Christmas ale, horse drawn carriage rides and pick out this year’s Christmas tree. 

12/8: Holiday CircleFest – Cleveland, University Circle Neighborhood

Infuse your holiday with some cultural fun. On Sunday, Dec. 8 Cleveland’s University Circle neighborhood transforms into a winter wonderland with something for everyone to enjoy.  At the 20th annual CircleFest, visitors can experience many of the museums and cultural institutions all day long for free. Outside, enjoy free horse-drawn carriage rides, ice carving demonstrations, the Rink at Wade Oval, live music, Santa and his sleigh complete with live reindeer, a gingerbread house competition, shopping and more.
